Samsung Galaxy S8 is Already Closing in on 1 Million Pre-Orders


Samsung Electronics Co. expects the latest flagship Galaxy S8 would not only help it restore its reputation but also make the smartphone smarter thanks to the newest features packed in its new premium phone.

Under the hood, the smartphones are expected to rock Exynos processor when they launch in India.

According to SamMobile, details on the device are now a bit hard to come by. Along with the basic phone features, Galaxy S8 has another additional mind-blowing feature that made it infinitely wonderful.

In the United States and some other markets, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones will hit store shelves on 21st of April. The Samsung Galaxy X features of an intuitive design (leaked through a patent) with two OLED screens connected with a hinge in the middle, thus making the device bendable up to 180 degrees. It's possible the company could do the same with the Galaxy S8 Active, though it's worth noting that Samsung is offering this year's flagship a bit later than those in the past and might want to wait a bit longer on the Active.

It's still unclear whether Samsung will consider an Active key on the Galaxy S8 Active, in addition to the dedicated Bixby button. Both models, available in five colours, are water, dust-resistant and support wireless charging. The duo run on Android Nougat based TouchWiz UI on top. We should have seen that on the Galaxy S 8 series, but what we got instead was a software-enhanced Galaxy S7 Edge camera.

Let's have a look at Galaxy S8 pricing in the table below. There's Bixby on board along with the Google Assistant to assist you in your daily life.

Even with the strong pre-orders, executives at Samsung acknowledged its reputation won't be rebuilt overnight. Our speculations are the phones will be priced at Rs. 59,990 and Rs. 69,990 respectively, but these are just our thoughts. While the dates were announced a while ago, with the launch dates nearing, Samsung India seems as excited about the day as we are.

Although its predecessor, the Galaxy S7 was an awesome device, the Galaxy S8 comes out on top when both of these are compared.
